Ethics in the fashion industry book
Last updated: August 2017
Clothing is an essential part of daily life. However, it’s an ethical minefield of complex supply chains, resource depletion and waste. This fashion section seeks to lead consumers through that minefield and the vast array of sustainability issues in the clothing market.
Our research focuses on two main areas, workers’ rights and the environment. The former has seen some big leaps forward in terms of reporting and transparency, but it appears that the latter has sadly remained stuck in the past.
We also highlight some positives in the industry and shine a light on those brands who are paying more attention to their social and environmental responsibilities, along side the campaigns striving for a fairer industry.
